ProximityOne Data Service 2
.. analyze market and service area demographic-economic characteristics for multiple levels of geography .. down to the neighborhood level. This section provides information about the ProximityOne Data Service 2 (PDS2). The PDS2 data provide you with access to geographic, demographic and economic data summarized at key geographic levels. Many of the PDS data resources are sourced from data developed by Federal geographic and statistical agencies. In their original form, most are almost impossible to use without restructuring. We reorganize those data so that they are easily accessible, can be easily integrated, and can be directly used in GIS and other applications and with a wide range of data analytics software. See about the related ProximityOne Data Service (PDS) U.S. by county, multi-sourced, multi-time period demographic-economic data.
PDS2 data are organized into datasets that may be downloaded by subscribers. The datasets are updated throughout the year. Many of these data may be viewed in the interactive tables section. Examples:
U.S. & States -- General Demographics .. Social .. Economic .. Housing
CBSAs/Metros -- General Demographics .. Social .. Economic .. Housing
Cities/Places -- General Demographics .. Social .. Economic .. Housing
ZIP Code Areas -- General Demographics .. Social .. Economic .. Housing
